Chirp chirp chirp

The days have been sunny and warm (95 😳) these last few days (normal temps for New Hampshire in May are in the high 60’s), we have been soaking up the sun, playing with birds, & getting our hands dirty. We had half an acre rototilled for our garden, we need to add some organic compost or manure before continuing on but the items in our green house are ready to be outside



The birds have been making more sounds and proving to me that they don’t care about fencing 



It seems like the days go by so fast, even though I’m up by five & taking care of critters, I feel like I blink and then it’s time to start dinner.

Usually we start our mornings off in the clouds (yes clouds, not fog, we are way up high). We move & feed the birds in the chicken tractors, take care of the pigs which will have their pen moved soon.

Take down the fencing for the backyard flockI let Toph take care of picking the fencing up, he is particular
Then we move the coop and set it all up again. Today they are over by Carrick, at first he was all “look what I can do”, hopping around and racing back & forth, an hour ago he was in the fartherest corner away from the birds for some peace.

This week I haven’t worked on much thanks to sinusitis (it’s not as fun as it is to pronounce)  so anyway, when I’m not holding a hot water bottle up to the side of my face, I am managing to get a few small things done.

I’m currently working on a strip quilt, I’m not a fan of how the colors played out, it makes me anxious and I’m not sure I want to do it again


I made a granny square docking station from loosely followed directions I found over at repeat crafter me, loosely followed meaning, I stuck squares on, stretched them out, and stuck in this sticks.


Today I am carding and washing merino. Only a pound at a time but I am doing Castile soap instead of dawn, with some vinegar, and I didn’t want to heat up water on my stove so, the wool is sitting in a tub with water as hot as the sink could get and it is getting super clean.


This was after two minutes my friends, TWO MINUTES!!! Look at how white that got. 

That’s all I have for you today folks, I wish I could freeze time everyday to take a seat & write a post, I don’t know how anyone has the time but I’m glad I found time today!

Have a great day folks!! Happy June!
